Talk Up Tuesday – A segment with Rob Hilditch from Harding’s, Your Improvement Company, showcasing all the great people, friends, companies, vendors and support workers that help Harding’s do what they do.

 

This week on Talk Up Tuesday, Rob talks about Harding’s commitment to it’s clients with Free Estimates. Free estimates should be the norm in the Painting and Home Improvement/Maintenance industry, yet it doesn’t seem to be. It used to be a marketing ploy, now its just good business. If your small contractor is charging for your estimate, walk away and find someone who does not charge for them. Talk you your local Better Business Bureau, trade publications or friends. Find the right company for you by not choosing one that is not charging to meet you.

This week on Talk Up Tuesday, I talk about my two year anniversary with Harding’s – Your Improvement Company and some of the changes we’ve made to take Harding’s into the future of Franchising the brand.

When I first transitioned into Harding’s I was taken back by the division we had among our group. There was changes that were needed immediately and we all got to work recognizing them and adjusting our going forward strategy. The ownership jumped on board with the vision and we started at making the necessary changes in branding, culture and operations to get us ready for Franchising.

We’ve implemented new CRM databases that combine seamlessly with our estimating and workflow software, we’ve completely changed the branding to be more modern, efficient and franchise friendly. We’ve made huge strides in how we work and interact with our team, made the changes required to make our company lean, mean and ready for the growth we want.

We’ve changed our online marketing strategies and adjusted our SEO along with our Adword strategies, taking our organic rankings far passed where we were.

We’ve added our first License outside the City of Calgary in the Okanagan Valley as well as three additional Licenses for Cleaning, Painting and Renovations in Airdrie, Cochrane and Calgary. .

I am very proud of the adjustments our team has made in their workflow practices and services levels in order to take us from great to fabulous. I say ‘we’ a lot because even though I may be in the drivers seat implementing these changes, we can not do it with out the buy in and actions of our team. They mean the world to me and how we operate, ensuring the level of service our clients deserve.

Here is to many more years to come!

Talk Up Tuesday’s; a new segment on our social feeds to shout out to all the other great companies that we work and partner with. Companies we recommend that do exceptional work or that just plain help us get by in our daily operations. Companies that just get ‘it’. First up; Browns Social House. I hold more meetings at Brown’s than I do in my office. Being an ex-restaurant guy I am always thoroughly impressed with the service and consistency of food quality from Brown’s. Their menu has something for everyone and their atmosphere is relaxed and classy but pub-like. You know, a Social House! Check them out @BrownsSocialHouse
